Helicopter carrying corona vaccine crashes in Uruguay

A military helicopter carrying coronavirus vaccines has crashed in Rocha, eastern Uruguay.

Uruguay’s Defense Ministry said the Bell 212 helicopter crashed while attempting an emergency landing.

There were no casualties, but three crew members were reported to have minor injuries.

About 300 doses of the Pfizer vaccine were sent from the capital Montevideo to Rocha to be administered to people over the age of 80, the helicopter said. The fire, which was caused by the helicopter crashing, was found to have wasted all of the vaccines.

Meanwhile, 414,926 people have been vaccinated in the country so far, according to data released by Uruguayan health officials. Thus, 11.83 percent of the population was vaccinated against corona virus. Since the outbreak began, 87,812 cases have been detected in Uruguay, while 843 people have died.
